Fish Tacos!

Erin sent me on a small errand to pick up ingredients to make some fish tacos tonight, and I decided to go to eleven. Specifically, we had never actually made them with a proper crema sauce before and I decided to fix that. After a quick search online of possible recipes, I came up with the following bit of experimental cooking.

White Cream Sauce for Fish Tacos:
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 2 whole red jalapeno peppers.
  1. puree the jalapeno peppers with a dash of vegetable oil and lime juice
  2. mix the pureed peppers with the remaining ingredients.

Keep in mind that I did it all to taste so those amounts are vague approximations.
  • To balance the sour cream and mayonnaise: when it's complete you should only barely be able to taste any mayonnaise.
  • To get the viscosity right just keep adding lime juice until the mixture is about 1/3rd as thick as mayonnaise.
  • Add cumin to taste, but you shouldn't taste too much cumin in the finished product.

They were so freakin' delicious I had 8. I guess playing 3 hours of squash on both Saturday and Sunday made me huuuuuuungry.
